Queer action/queer ideas.
"Badgett offers some new ways of thinking to convert the many people who use their power to hurt LGBT people, whether in passing discriminatory laws, firing them from jobs, harassing them in school, beating them on the streets, failing to protect them from beatings, kicking them out of families, or depriving them of appropriate health care-in short, in excluding them from the core institutions that make it possible to live a good life. Understanding the economic cost of that homophobia and transphobia gives activists, businesses, development agencies, and policymakers a new tool that can help change lives"--Provided by publisher.
